Its perfectly legal to have a truck/car with a full size decal on the back glass, such as an american flag, or a business decal. I've personally seen more of the business decals on trucks/vans then I have the decoration type decals such as flag/football team/etc.

Section 316.2954

So 5%/2.5%/0% "should" be legally allowed here under this section of florida law as long as you have two side mirrors & the 5%/2.5%/0% is install on only the rear window. Same applys to full size rear window decals.

Section 316.2951

Here it gets a little tricky. If you measure the rear quarter windows on a supercab ranger, you'll find that those windows are ~252 square inches. However the border of these are really tick/blacked out, so the true viewing size of the windows are ~72 square inches. In theory you could black out these windows & may get away with it. You could try explaining along with a printout to the cop, or prove it to a judge if ticketed. I would say you have a really good case if the judge isn't a power crazy one, because really the real "window" part is only ~72 square inches.

Section 316.2952

Make of note of this, I have received a ticket because the guy you installed the strip of tint on my windshield made it too big, and was around 1inch pass the mark. However the mark was no longer on the wind shield & had been removed. I'm guessing the guy who tinted it removed the mark after doing the tint. Either he mistakenly made it too big & took an "easy fix" way out so if cops saw it, they couldn't say it passed the line or he did it on purpose. The cop issued the ticket under statute 316.610-B, driving with unsafe equipment with a $118.00 assessment. He told me I could get it removed then show it to any police officer at the station & not have a fine to pay. I've never seen a fix-it ticket, and the ticket issued to me was just a normal printed out ticket like I've seen many time. No where on the ticket said it was a it was fix-able, nor did the back list the have the option of taking it to a location to approve it was fix compared to the ones I've seen on google. I thought of requesting a court date and maybe proving it was fixed however since the ticket didn't have that, and I believe that the guy was just lying to me/or maybe made a mistake and printed it out as a normal ticket. However I wasn't going to waste my time & gas to just 'hope' that it would get dismissed.

Some more little bits of information on tint installers & etc.

Section 316.2956

Its pretty much any vehicle older then 1984 may have whatever tint you may wish. Tell the police officer it was put on it before 1984, but has been "repaired"/replaced with non-faded tint & since it had it before 1984 it is legal. And I believe you guys can read (3) for yourself.

Section 316.2955

Explains itself.
Holy info batman
